We are going to replace 2 reciprocating compressors on a chiller unit. These compressors share a common circuit. Outdoor air cooled condensers, chiller barrels inside below condensers. One contractor wants to install suction accumulators and oil separators. Two other contractors would not bid on either of those items. I'm leaning towards installing accumulators (~8% costlier) and forgetting about separators (~25% costlier). Any suggestions?

As the semiconductor industry races to keep pace with Mooreâ€™s Law, which regards the doubling of transistors per square inch on integrated circuits, lithography hardware systems are not always able to provide a quality image for creating circuits. Download Now
Current integrated circuit (IC) designs are complex, which can result in different voltages being located close to one another. To prevent time dependent dielectric breakdown (TTDB), it is essential to incorporate space rules within IC design. Download Now
